What's a good base for Armenia? (after Yerevan, of course)

Jump to last reply

I'm looking into a 17 day trip that would be mainly Armenia, with perhaps four days in Russia at the end, as Moscow seems to be the best connecting point anyway (and it's been way too long since I've been there.)

My plan is to have an apartment in Yerevan for five or six days, probably over the Vardavar holiday, and do day trips from there, then move on to another base location to explore some more. (Hyur Services seems to have what I'm looking for in the day trips/apartment area.) I'm leaning toward Goris or Dilijan for the next base, but am certainly open to other possibilities.

To give you some background, I'll probably be traveling solo (female, 48, quite accustomed to solo travel) and I don't drive. I like culture/nature/history, not so much into beach/nightlife/shopping. (Not that the beach is really relevant here, although there is Lake Sevan, which I'd probably visit on a day trip.)

Any suggestions or revisions to the plan would be gratefully considered. I've happily read thursdaysd's blog on Armenia, but otherwise there's not a whole lot of info about Armenia travel. I've got the Bradt and the Lonely Planet guidebooks, but haven't been able to come up with a definite plan from them--I think I'm just so used to getting more immediate feedback these days! :)

Many thanks for any info you'd like to share!
